Jeff Foxworthy Hosting 'The American Bible Challenge,' New GSN Biblical Game Show

How well do you know the Bible? Jeff Foxworthy can help you find out.

GSN has tapped the comedian to host "The American Bible Challenge," a game show that tests contestants' knowledge of the scripture, with the intention of celebrating the Bible and incorporating it into contemporary life.

"I am excited to be hosting a show about the bestselling book of all time," Foxworthy said in a statement. "It will be interesting to find out what people really know, and an opportunity to present the Bible in a fun and entertaining way."

Foxworthy has authored several books including "You Might Be A Redneck If..." and several versions of "Jeff Foxworthy's Redneck Dictionary." He starred in 1995's sitcom "The Jeff Foxworthy Show," and most recently hosted Fox's "Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader?," which aired from 2009-2011.

The pilot for "American Bible Challenge" will be shot later this month. The show's official air date is yet to be announced.
